Question about Curtis RT700 7 in. Portable Television

1 Answer

Has anyone else had this problem?

My 7" portable Curtis TV suddenly caught on fire while I was watching it! Lucky I was right there to unplug it or it could have been very serious. It is 18 months old,of course out of warrenty,but this is an extremely dangerous problem!!

    I noticed a strange burning smell and then the TV went dead.  The power light was still on but the TV was dead.  Got nervous about the smell and pulled the plug.

I bought the same tv about a year ago. I noticed that the power adapter gets very hot when plugged into the electrical outlet so I unplug it after watching tv. Better to be safe than sorry.

Since this Curtis RT700 TV is analog, is there an adapter available to make it digital usable?


Yes,the analoge tv must hook through a box that called a Digital Converter box to get a Free AIR DTV broadcasting tvs channels signals.These Digital Converter boxes are no longer on sale by those regular big boxes stores like Walmart or Target.Tries webites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to a Digital Converter box for any analoge tvs to uses.

Check the output on the X/former. (E190246). I believe it's AC-AC, 120 to 12.

I'm not very techy when it comes to hooking up my model # 2603 flatscreen to my curtis model #1043 DVD player.........HOW DO I PLUG IN THE RIGHT WIRES......Please help. Thanks, TOM


RCA Plugs Wires. If you use only Audio, just plug the red and the white plug into the designated jacks. From the recorder you might need a 1/8 Stereo Plug. If you have RCA outputs, no problem, if it's a DVD player, than you need an RCA plugged wire with a yellow plug. Just to keep them apart. So you connect the input wire to the correct jack on the KCR2610.

What is the tv code so i can program my remote


Your TV code is different for every REMOTE brand. Make sure of the brand and use their code. If you can't find the code, buy a universal remote for $5 to $7 and use supplied codes. Hope this helps.

Digital tuner adapter


All of us that own this pint-size tv will experience the same problem come Feb. 2009. The only solution is to purchase a digital tuner adapter and "adapt".
